Running a catering business requires the ability to do more with less. In many cases catering kitchens are smaller and lack valuable storage space. Furthermore, the ware, equipment, and of course food and drink, must all fit in the vehicle or trailer used to transport it to the event. Taking up most of that limited space are big and bulky storage and transport racks essential to any foodservice operation. Now for the good news! The future of space saving racks is upon us. Keep reading to learn how to gain more space without sacrificing the equipment you need to grow your catering business.
If you could store ten pan racks in the same amount of space you currently need to store seven racks, would that get your attention? If you answered yes, then you are in luck because there are pan racks available that can do just that. So, what type of pan rack can deliver on that claim? Nesting Racks. But what are nesting racks? As the name implies, nesting racks “nest” into each other when not in use rather than sitting next to one other. The ability of these racks to nest together is responsible for a whopping thirty percent space savings over traditional pan racks while still holding the same amount of sheet pans. Because not all spaces and requirements are the same, neither are nesting racks. To select the right nesting pan racks for your specific needs, read on.
At the end of the day, the final verdict comes down to you and your catering operation’s specific needs. While all the space saving pan racks mentioned above will help to better serve your clients while providing the extra space needed to grow your business, it’s vitally important that you protect your investment by purchasing quality equipment. Don’t discount features like welded crossbar support gussets, welded pan slides, and welded plate casters. The unique shape and design of these amazing racks require extra support to hold their shape and work properly, so don’t skimp when it comes to choosing quality nesting racks – you’ll be happy you didn’t!
